HANDLING INSTRUCTIONS

Exposure to TRIB II ® PRESSURE TREATED WOOD may present certain hazards. The following precautions should be taken both when handling the treated wood and in determining where to use or dispose of the treated wood residue. Refer to Material Safety Data Sheets for ingredients.

TRIB II ® PRESSURE TREATED WOOD may be used for interior or exterior, concealed or exposed applications, but MUST BE DRY BEFORE USING. Do not handle or install TRIB II ® PRESSURE TREATED WOOD until it is odor free. If wet wood must be handled, use impervious gloves and other protective clothing as necessary.

While wood is drying, stack in a well ventilated area so that air circulates around each piece. Do not store in closed areas or where vapors may enter living or work spaces. Do not install in enclosed areas until solvents have volatized. Avoid inhalation of vapors.

TRIB II ® PRESSURE TREATED WOOD must be thoroughly dry before staining/painting or blisters or bleeding may occur. Several days to several weeks may be required for adequate drying, depending on humidity, ventilation, material treated, etc. It is recommended that a vapor barrier such as rosin paper or similar material capable of withstanding solvent be applied between the roof membrane and the decking or flooring material as recommended by the National Roofing Contractors’ Association.

Do not use TRIB II ® PRESSURE TREATED WOOD for cutting blocks or countertops. Do not use TRIB II ® PRESSURE TREATED WOOD under circumstances where the preservative may become a component of food or animal feed.

Gloves are recommended as a normal precaution against wood splinters and skin abrasion for this and all wood products. Avoid inhalation of sawdust from treated wood, wear a dust mask. Whenever possible, these operations should be performed outdoors to avoid indoor accumulation of airborne sawdust. When power sawing and machining, wear goggles to protect eyes from flying particles.

Wash hands thoroughly after handling treated wood and before eating, smoking or using the bathroom. Good personal hygiene should be used. Launder clothing contaminated with sawdust or treating solution prior to reuse and separate from household laundry.

Dispose of treated wood by ordinary trash collection or burial. TRIB II ® PRESSURE TREATED WOOD should not be burned in open fires or in stoves, fireplaces or residential boilers because hazardous thermal decomposition products may potentially be produced as part of the smoke and ash. Treated wood from commercial or industrial use (e.g., construction sites) should be burned only in commercial incinerators or boilers in accordance with State and Federal regulations.
